I think you need to use:


0 50,30 19,20 * * *

This will run at 19:30 19:50 20:30 20:50, every day of every month of every weekday.

If you to run at 7:50 pm and 8:30 pm, i think you need two tasks, but i'm not sure

Hi Michael,

That one will fire at second :00, at minutes :50 and :30, at 19pm and 20pm, of every day. 

Therefore it will fire at 19:30, 19:50, 20:30, 20:50

You cannot be that specific in one task, you will need two tasks, one for 19:50 and one for 20:30. Otherwise if you can be happy with 19:00 and 19:40, then use this one:

0 0,40 19,19 ? * *

19,19 is redundant. It can be 19 alone.

Thx very much.
So i take two Tasks.


best regards
